Euroarms R&S
« on: January 28, 2018, 06:26:54 PM »
Here are some photos of my Euroarms Rogers & Spencer replica. Date code is BC (2006) and as best I can tell, this one had never been fired. A real sweetheart and a mandatory part of any ACW collection, even though only a handful were thought to have seen service before the advent of metallic cartridges. As the story goes, almost the entire lot ended up in a warehouse being purchased by Bannerman's and sat there until the early 1900's when they were sold off as novelties and 'antiques'. Had this gun seen service, it would have most certainly been a favorite as it has combined the best features of several period firearms.

Here's an old post of mine from Colt Country, circa 2013...

Been wanting one of these for, well...a long time. Finally got the opportunity, and it turned out to be a pristine, unfired Euroarms version. Still haven't fired it yet. It's kinda like having an unopened comic book. But I know I can't hold out much longer; I get weaker every time I pack up for the range!

Nice Rogers and Spencer! 1993 gun. Armi San Paolo?

The only dig I have is that the TG seems to have quite a few tool marks, unlike the rest of the pistol which looks great.

I find it interesting that the top of the TG is not continuous. I guess I have not paid much attention to these guns.

I have also read that some folks say that the load lever retaining screw is somewhat fragile.

They don't seem to give those pistols away!

The little load lever retaining screw is a pain! ha
I purchased mine in 2012 from a collector. It is also a Euro Arms made in 1989.
It is unfired.
I bought is as a show specimen.

That it is.

Jim, Mine is a Euroarms (aka Armi San Paolo) EA bought out ASP when they folded. The barrel is stamped DGG on the bottom and Euroarms on the top flat.

the barrel on mine is stamped "Euroarms of America" on the top. I can not locate any marking on the bottom. On the left of the barrel near the frame it is marked ".44 cal".  On the right is the BP only stuff. Directly in front of that is proof marks. On the left of the frame below the cylinder is the serial number.  On the right upper side of the frame in front of the cylinder opening is a date code for 2001 (BP), next are proof marking that are identical to the Gardone Houseas shown at the right bottom of page 13, 7th ed Blue Book of Modern Black powder Arms.

On the cylinder there are some interesting stampings. I can make out a "N"  I am guessing the "P" in front is missing. after the "N" is a dash. after that is a symbol that is not clear but I am sure it is the Gardone House stamping. The star symbol with I assume is supposed to be barrel riflings is under the "N" rather than over it as is the Gardone V.T. black powder proof house stamping.

Your thoughts?

I have always thought the finish was terrible. It is very dull. If you look and feel the cylinder it looks and feels like a vinyl record grooves.
